Getting mad when people tell me I don't look like my own ethnicity.

I am a Pakistani girl who work in one of an East Asian country.I keep being mistaken as an Asian girl and its getting into my nerve.Don't get me wrong.I don't have anything against Asians.I feel like some people are ignorant when they randomly make an assumption without asking me.I face this quite often.I feel more annoyed when the people of my own ethnic can spot who I am but why can't they? Am I a racist person for feeling this way?

  • I get the same thing, lol. Even my brother tells me I look like I'm from Iran, haha. It doesn't make you racist. It makes you annoyed since people assume you're one race when you're actually another. I think it's a normal reaction.

  • It's worse when you actually are Asian and they call you Chinese or Japanese no matter what.
